 “you settle a little bit,” Shepard said. By that, he means the actual vertebrae bones, which have interiors “more like Styrofoam,” can become more compact.

Shepard said that most people lose up to an inch and a half over their lifetimes. Studies suggest that some people lose as much as two or three inches.

The incredible shrinking boomer.
